win it. do appreciate all you do for prostate cancer as well. >> hillary clinton is no longer secretary of state and bid farewell to staff and friends at the state department. >> i am so grateful that we have had a chance to contribute in each of our ways to making our country and our world stronger, safer, fairer, and better. >> what will be clinton's legacy at state? let's go to the war room. strategist richard goodstein and republican strategist joe watkins, an aide to george h.w. bush. let me start with you. hillary clinton left as an extremely popular secretary of state and griacing news week's cover calling her the most powerful woman in american history. that's a definitive declaration. >> close to it. there many powerful women in the united states and in the world, but hillary clinton is easily one if not the most powerful. her career has been extraordinary. not only first lady, but a u.s. senator and secretary of state and somebody who could be again a candidate for the presidency in 2016. >> she came under fire for the attack on the consulate in ben gazay that left f
hillary clinton's was. >> i could not agree with more. in terms of what we're going to hear from panetta, he will say the same thing from hillary clinton. essentially the same answers that he has already given in many interviews over how many months since the benghazi attack. what we can expect to hear from congressional republicans are the same sorts of disrespectful and antagonistic ill-informed things we also heard during the hearings of hillary clinton and even chuck hagel. >> heather: so not iminformed responses. i'll toss this question to you. they did indict the department of state, this is a quote, with shocking irresponsibility to protect american personnel at benghazi. the fact is the intelligence community and the department of state, they were sharing reports mostly provided by the c.i.a. for months that were outlining the growing threat in benghazi and, indeed, it was focused on western influence particularly the u.s. those requests early on for additional security prior to the attack went unanswered. you are satisfied with that response from panetta? >> yeah, i think what i
in the broader region. i think secretary clinton and panetta seemed to be overruled by the white house. >> heather: it boggles the mind, the threat streams in libya, they were equaled elsewhere with equally significant and threatening intelligence, general dempsey's words. if we know that, then why this report from the deputy general that looked at 27 overseas diplomatic posts found numerous security standards violations for overseas buildings. on top of that the state department not keeping track of all the rules violated. why is that happening? >> they inspector general tells us the what and not the why. the sense i get there really is a ideological or political overtone we are unwinding wars to allocate resources to other purposes. it's not taking seriously what any reasonable person's mind would suggest. a broadening they the threat. the scope of al-qaeda and affiliated reach is expanding. there has been a lack of willingness among top leadership especially in the white house to take that head on. >> heather: you mentioned we have heard from clinton, panetta petraeus, dempsey, bren
in charge with the people on the ground. >> would you say secretary clinton in charge. >> pardon me? >> was secretary clinton in charge. >> the people in charge, were the ambassador there at benghazi. >> no. but, they can't, you know, they were trying to save their lives. rick: richard grenell, a former spokesperson for the last four u.s. ambassadors to the u.n. byron york, is chief political correspondent at the "washington examiner". gentlemen, good to see you both. rick, you first. you worked at a number of administrations. odd that the president himself would be so hands off while one of our consulates was under attack? >> yeah, very odd. i think it's, mitt romney was right. it really was a weak response from the president. he was off in vegas at a fund-raiser. the simple fact is, they took a couple pictures in the oval office where secretary panetta was briefing the president. but the president was hands off. the other thing we learned, secretary clinton was hand off. these employees that were under attack were state department employees. where was secretary clinton? she didn't
were heading toward a war toward noth and south korea and i wrote president clinton a letter and said i've decided to go without your approval, and the vice president, al gore, intercepted my letter, president clinton was in europe, the anniversary of the normandy landing, if you change that sentence to i am strongly inclined to go, i think i can get the president's approval. and i went and i worked out an agreement. >> do you think hilary clinton will run in 2016? >> i don't know what she will do, but she's done an outstanding job as secretary of state. i'm proud of her achievement. >> let's take a break. the academy awards this weekend in los angeles. have you a vested interest i think really in your heart, "argo" which involves one of the good moments of your presidency, is up for the best movie. we'll ask you about that. >> all right. >>> president carter brought with him some memorabilia which we auction to benefit the carter center. >> i make furniture, made all kinds in the past, four poster beds. this time i made a simple stool out of a beautiful piece of wood, and it will be au
with clinton or biden. 2016. >> oh. >> you've been close to both of them. secretary panetta, i've got to ask you, who's ready to be commander in chief tomorrow? >> i think both of them -- i have worked with both of them. if they make the decision they want to be commander in chief, i think they are both qualified to do it. >> what's their distinctive strengths? >> i for joe biden, obviously as vice president, knowing the world, knowing the issues involved, knowing what it means to govern from that perspective. and for hillary clinton, she knows it from every angle now, having worked in the white house, been a part of that, and now as secretary of state knowing the world. >> biden or clinton? >> i'd like to see which of the harbaugh brothers come out on top. >> gentlemen, thank you both for being here. >> thank you, chuck. good to see you. >> as secretary panetta prepares to leave government service again, we spent some additional time with him on press pass to talk about that long career as a congressman, budget director, white house chief of staff, and director of the cia. he also weighs in
, hillary clinton, acknowledging she was not involved in the operations that take. the president himself was not involved. secretary of defense panetta said they had one conversation, and that was it. this that astonish you? >> it sounds like these people are trying to absolve themselves of gts or any sort of association with was happen that night. and i can say what was going on in the oval office that night. it's time for somebody to take responsibility. you know, i would liken it to the bay of pigs fiasco where president kennedy came forward and took responsibility. we need somebody to do that now and dedicate themselves toward fixing whatever went wrong then night. lou: you gentleman offered. again, involving, as you would guess, all of the special operations folks out there working. what is this sense, if i can call it a community, what is the sense among the community about whats going on now? i cannot imagine the route -- morale being very high. >> i think a big issue that i have talked on lately is, we have really no strategic objective in afghanistan. does not seem like we have
testimony on benghazi from general petraeus, hillary clinton, admiral mike mullen, leon panetta, martin dempsey, but it's not enough. republicans want to know what happened as the attack in benghazi went down and who changed those talking points. they want more answers from the president. so dana, is chuck, is the blockage of chuck hagel's confirmation because of benghazi, as lindsey graham illustrates or is it because of something else? >> reporter: it is mostly because of chuck hagel. benghazi was, they sort of have been on a crusade to get more answers for benghazi and like you see many, many times here in the senate, they saw chuck hagel and his nomination as a way to use that as leverage to get answers and they did, they got an answer about what the president's role was on that day. but really this is mostly about chuck hagel and you know, john mccain is actually the perfect example of why it is about the man himself, and that is he said last night after he had kind of given lots of different explanations, all of them i think are credible from his point of view, that the real funda
